Let me get this straight.... We're going to be "gifted" with a health care plan we are forced to purchase and fined if we don't, which purportedly covers at least ten million more people, without adding a single new doctor, but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents, who have recently demonstrated their objective and professional integrity; written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that didn't read it but exempted themselves from it, and signed by a Dumbo (ie: big ears) President who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, for which we'll be taxed for four years before most benefits take effect, by a government which has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare and the Post Office all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that's broke!!!!!
What could possibly go wrong?

Dear letter-writer -
Shouldn't your question of:"I don’t know what is scarier — that the cops release armed robbers at 1 a.m."
be re-phrased as:"I don’t know what is scarier — that the lib-dems that run California and our County allow the release of armed robbers at 1 a.m. after serving only 2 months..."
Cops don't release prisoners from prison. California legislators do, via the laws that they pass.
Remember: vote lib-dem and feel good about yourself. Symbolism over substance.

Dear Mr. Heron and Mr. Weisman
It may be time for both of you to brush on on your Orwell and focus on the parts about DoubleSpeak.
How can this comment:"Board President Monique Limón said, “I’m not clear on why having two or eight more Latino students in a school is so upsetting to [some] families.”
Not be construed as racist, race-based, an accusations of non-Latino's families being racist?
How is that OK with each of you? Why are you willing to accept this comment, apologize for it, praise the person that said it and then call the reaction of readers against this racially insensitive, racial allegation against parents "outrageous" or that you are horrified by someone pointing it out?
You are truly, deeply embedded in your own world of Political Correctness, face-saving, smoothing over and looking the other way - but only if a Latino woman makes such a distasteful and unacceptable statement.
You should both be ashamed of yourselves. And to think children's lives are being managed in part by your actions - and these actions. Shameful.

Tabatha - it is *because* of Obamacare mandates that private insurance companies are raising rates. It is also because of Obamacare that private employers are moving full time workers to part time and almost all those cases are against the working poor.
It is also because of Obamacare that service levels will drop, deductibles are going up and options are going down.
And then add death panels to the mix. Wonderful, right?

Hey Democrats! Have you heard that the Democrat led Senate refused to pass a government spending bill because it included *everything* Obama wanted for Obamacare except a 1 year delay in the individual mandate to match the 1 year delay that Obama gave (by illegal executive fiat) to corporations?
Hey Democrats!Have you heard that the "shut down" kept 83% of government spending running and that our Sec of Defense Hagel could have continued to pay our veterans, but chose not to?
Hey Democrats!Have you heard that we are $17 Trillion in debt and half of that happened during the Obama administration?
Hey Democrats!Have you thought about what's going to happen to the working poor and all the harm it will cause them and minorities when we eventually run out of the ability to keep borrowing to pay for all the caring and wonderful things that lib-dems keep rolling out to get more votes?

1. No identity politics.2. Step up anti-vagrancy, anti-pan-handling and anti-aggressive behavior on State street downtown.3. Common sense about spending hard earn tax dollars and fees.

This only works by:- overcharging young healthy people to subsidize old sick ones.- raising rates overall (currently national average +99% for males and +65% for females).- lowering payments to doctors for same services rendered today which will (and already is) creating a doctor shortage, compounded by lib-dems refusal to adjust medical lawsuit reform.- forcing businesses to pay for obamacare or pay a penalty (in one year from now)- forcing individuals to buy health insurance or pay a penalty for not buying it.
Once you finish signing up, you will be *blown away* by what it will cost you to pay for health insurance (unsubsidized) and delighted to know that obamacare will raise premiums on you, give you a HUGE deductible and your choice of care will be extremely limited - and include 100+ day waits to see specialists.
So all in all, it makes perfect sense for you to keep voting lib-dem, keep supporting obamacare (because it makes you feel better about yourself and you "care" about people) and keep trashing small government, constitutionalists tea party types as nutbags. (my words, not yours).

Monique Limon is the most racist and offensive school board member in the history of the board. To suggest that SB Charter school families are against Latino student growth at the school is so outrageous it can only be explained as the result of a personality (Limon) that is deeply racist and hostile toward non Latino's.
She has no evidence for her accusation.
She should be recalled or at least shouted down for hostile and offensive statements. Good grief. How can such a person be on our school board?

Dear Sierra Club members:
Please remember to follow these three best practices we have outlined for you and become a "Super Sierra":
1. Walk, jog, skate or ride a bike always (and no petroleum based chain grease or skateboard wheels.) If you end up unable to find or keep a job, don't worry, we're busy building a large dependent class of Super Sierra's like you that will be able to vote to tax oily rich evil-doers to give you free things like: food stamps, section 8 and straight up checks called EITC, worth up to $5000/yr (and we're working hard with our lib-dem brethren to get that WAY up).
2. When you vote, don't use a plastic pen or wood pens with a plastic cartridge or an ink cartridge with petroleum based ink. Instead, fashion quill-feathers from avian roadkill and raspberry juice. Don't use any plastic handled knives when sharpening your quill pen or plastic containers to hold your juice.
3. When you vote, be sure you are in a house made only of wood or cloth and check to be sure the lot your house is on was graded by hand (no machinery, since it's made of metal, which is made from furnaces that burn fossil fuels).
Also: if you are reading this, your membership is at risk because computers use lots of plastic and electrons flow over copper wires that come from strip mines with heavy equipment. Stand in front of the mirror and shout loudly: "I am addicted to fossil fuel - shame on me!" 4 times (for each direction of the compass) and donate an extra $100 to our cause and you will be restored to Super Sierra status.
